Blunt Reviews Presents: Beasts of No Nation (2015)

beasts of no nation

If the Academy wants to ignore this film for whatever bizarre reason then they can continue being morons, because this was an utterly compelling piece of film. Even from the outset this is a gritty drama that completely immerses the audiences into a world of conflict and uncertainty, in one of the most naturalistic films I can remember seeing. Idris Elba is superb as ever, with the young Abraham Attah giving an outstanding performance in the lead role. It’s from Attah’s performance that the film explores key themes like maturity and the social construction of childhood. Nothing short of brilliant.
